Ruth has been a member of Wingham Probus since its inception in 1996.

With 82 members, the club is a valuable social outlet said president Graham Lewis.

"Some of our members live in retirement homes and they enjoy being able to come down to meetings and go on social outings with the club."

With a photography club that has a "no camera necessary" policy the emphasis is always on the social aspect.

There's also a Marjong club and caravanning trips that set up camp in one place so members can enjoy a nice walk or a spot of golf together.
